Real Talk with Anna Sward: How to Indulge Without Guilt this Thanksgiving

My top tip for indulging in foods you like without feeling guilty on or around Thanksgiving is to–make healthier versions of the foods you crave!

Instead of avoiding cookies altogether in your quest to maintain your weight during the holiday season, make some nutritious and delicious high-protein cookies. Take them with you to a family event or dinner party .  If you’re craving pumpkin pie, make a high protein version and serve that instead. The point is not to feel deprived at all, and to enjoy all the wonderful flavors the holiday season has to offer :-). Check my website Protein Pow, the recipe section at Growing Naturals, or even Pinterest for ideas on how to make your fav (not-so nutritious) foods more nutritious.

Speaking of foods people crave, here’s a great idea for all those turkey leftovers. Take for example this bread right here. It was fantastic!!!!! Moist, bread-y, and absolutely perfect for my filling of mayo and turkey.
